doctor Yaffee did a triple bypass on me in late january 2020.when he was done I woke up,thats a good start.5 days after surgery I was discharged.Within 6 weeks of my discharge I was up and doing many of the things I always did.now about 10 months later im still waking up thats what I call continuing success,I can do most anything I want,I can even do many things I dont want to do like walk 2 full miles without ever feeling winded or feeling the slightest discomfort.everyone who demands to see my scar marvels at how perfect the incision was made and how clean it has healed.I think Doc Yaffee is tremendous and im grateful to him and his remarkable skill.He does not have a lot to say and I dont like people so we hit it off great.
